The Oregon Social Learning Center (OSLC) Treatment Foster Care program places youth with a history of juvenile delinquency in trained foster families with the goal of providing delinquent adolescents with closer supervision, fair and consistent limits, predictable consequences for rule-breaking, a supportive relationship with at least one adult mentor, and less exposure to delinquent peers. The intervention is primarily provided by the foster families, caseworkers, and therapists, however biological/adoptive families have some put into the treatment.
The OSLC Treatment Foster Care program has not yet been thoroughly reviewed by PPN, but preliminary review suggests it may be effective at improving outcomes for the indicators listed above.
